    In that case update your sig! :D 4Ghz is achievable on pretty much all unlocked sandy bridge chips so unless cooling is an issue I'd aim for that, its a nice round number. May even be able to do it on near enough stock volts - might need correcting there as I started at 5ghz and worked my way down lol :)

    ^ I've run mine at 4.8 but dropped it down to 4.5 because you really don't need any more.

    That's a nice low voltage loophole so I see why you settled there. I put in 1.4v but my temps stay below 70c too (most game make it barely break 60) so I'm happy with it. I've pushed up to 5.1ghz but there's little to warrant the 1.5v needed and the scarey temps.

    4 - 4.5Ghz would be the sweet spot for sure

    Have any of you use or come across KFA2 brand? Seems slightly cheaper than the rest.

    Their cooling on the triple fan cards could be better, however at least with their limited edition 680, their clock profiles are very few which is ideal for 600 series.
    I'd imagine the clock profiles on all their 600 series are similarly tidy, tech power up reviews show gpu clock profiles.
    here's an example of a very neat profile on the kfa2 680 limited edition>

    Cool thanks mate! But screw that, MSI Power Edition is £302 on scan, or even Gainward for £279

    haha i get too excited! i wanted to get 660ti, then thought ill get for something cheaper for now, then back to 660ti..and 670 now..think i would rather pay £50 extra for 670 over 660ti( its so expensive). Well this month hopefully. Might as well stick it on credit card and enjoy it :)

    Hey, i bought a MSI 670 OC edition yesterday.

    There is an outstanding difference comparing with a 6850 crossfire. Everything seems smoother, and im not talking about FPS, its a different feeling... 45 fps ingame with the 670 seems like 60 fps in the crossfire. Also everything looks smoother in terms of quality.

    I love how it works for physx. Batman (al Ultra Dx11 Physx high) is REALLY enjoynable. Mafia II is lovely.

    The thing is in Borderlands 2 (1080, Max setings, physcs high) when a lot of action is going on (especially with 3 team mates) the fps go as low as 38 or so... its kinda of annoying. The GPU usage at those moments are 60%~ so i figured that must be a driver problem.

    Sorry for the english!

    That's because you no longer have micro-stutter I came from two 6950's could not be happier myself as well.

    I believe the msi 670 power edition uses the same pcb as the 680, it also has added functions with MSI Afterburner, and has nice cooling.
    Just sayin', but if you have to go for a reference don't sweat it, you got the 670, one of the best cards in the world right now.
